FEATURED ON HGTV NATIONAL OPEN HOUSE MILLION DOLLAR PROPERTY
Located in one of Key West's most prestigious gated communities, 'The Foundry' provides a unique opportunity to enjoy a luxury condominium constructed within an important piece of historic American architecture.
Situated on the island of Key West, the magnificent brick structure that houses this residence was originally built around 1845 as an iron works at the then Fort Zachary Taylor Military Annex. Constructed in the impressive Spanish Colonial style, the clean and simple architectural lines of this period were originally designed to imbue a sense of civic pride. Even today this classic brick building evokes a sentimental remembrance about the U.S. when American democracy was in its infancy.
Renovated in the 1990's by a local private developer, this beautiful Historic Foundry structure was re-designed as townhouse condominium residences in what is now known as the residential neighborhood of 'Truman Annex'. This upscale island neighborhood was renamed for President Harry Truman who spent his winters in at the Annex at his home known as 'The Little White House.' His famous residence, which is now a museum, is just down the street from the Foundry.
The renovation of this property created an expansive condominium with high ceilings, few interior walls, lots of French windows and a graceful classic entrance. The front entrance is private manicured grounds complete with roomy sitting porch. Double French doors painted white, with transom windows lead into the open air living room and galley kitchen.
Located off the kitchen area is your own private side courtyard. Beautifully manicured with many plants and trees. You can relax on the deck or have a drink or dinner at the table with friends.
The tri-level design of this residence maximizes the use of space and creates privacy with three distinct living areas. The first floor of this residence is comprised of the living room, kitchen, and a half-bath.
The stair case continues to the second floor where you find the first spacious bedroom, complete with a king size bed and a full bath. Off the bedroom you will find a private balcony. The second floor also houses the conveniently located laundry center hidden behind closet doors. The stair case then leads to the third floor where you find the second spacious bedroom, complete with a queen size bed, and a full second bathroom. Both bedrooms are carpeted and nicely furnished.
Kitty corner from the property is the resort-style heated swimming pool that is shared with the condominium complex. The heated pool, complete with lounge chairs, is just steps away, in a beautifully landscaped cabana pool garden area. Another feature of this residence is private designated parking which is located at the rear side of this property. Each unit is allocated one parking spot.
Grounds throughout the gated Truman Annex are park-like - exquisitely landscaped and manicured to picturesque perfection, making it a delightful neighborhood to walk and bicycle. From here you are just a few minutes walk to Duval St. and the center of downtown Old Town Key West. White picket fences, freshly clipped hedges, green grounds and fountains create an impressive back drop for your stroll. Original military officer’s homes, now renovated as large private luxury mansions, display both Italian and Greek Revival architectural styles.
We are Jen and Mike from Columbus Ohio. In 1998 we decided to take our first trip to Key West at Christmas/New Years. We stayed in Truman Annex in a shipyard unit. We really enjoyed the Island, it made a great first impression. We could not wait to come back the following year for Christmas/New Years. We plan this trip every year during the same time. In 2001 we decided to try another location in Truman Annex called the Foundry. We really liked the location and the units. In 2004 an end unit came on the market. Because of our love and enjoyment of the Island we decided to pull the trigger and buy it. We have enjoyed every minute of owning this unit. We have been coming to Key West for the past 13 years. We really enjoy the atmosphere, people and the local culture. We have been renting our unit since 2004 and it has been a great experience. We have meet so many nice people and enjoy opening up our townhouse to them so they can enjoy the Island and location like we do.

Truman Annex is one of the best locations in Key West. It is a gated community with about 450 Homes,Townhouse and Condo's. So you get a variety of places on a well kept piece of property. The location is within walking distance to just about everything. Within blocks to all the bars,restaurants,beaches,entertainment.
Our unit is very spacious with 3 levels. The first consists of the living area, kitchen and half bath. It has a great front porch along with a very private side courtyard. We really enjoy sitting on the front porch watching the people pass by and talking with the neighbors. We also like the privacy of the side courtyard for dinner or drinks.On the second level is the master bedroom and a balcony. The third level is another master bedroom. It is a great set up for when family and friends visit. It feels very spacious and roomy.
It was our first time in Key West and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay! The townhouse is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The location was perfect! We could walk to everything , Duval St, Mallory Square, Fort Zackery. Even though it was only two blocks from Duval St it was quiet and peaceful. We would definitely rent from Mike again. It was our tropical oasis for a week!
We've all heard nightmare stories of renting off of the Internet. Let me put your mind at ease about this rental as it is the real deal. The pictures on VRBO provide a true representation of this very comfortable and centrally located unit. The property is near many of the popular sites on the island, but also provides adequate peace and quiet. The unit is well appointed and comfortable. The owner, Mike is very responsive. The entire rental process was seamless. We love Key West and visit yearly. Would be very happy to stay in this unit again!
We have been to Key West several times, but have never stayed in the Truman Annex. It was the perfect location for anything you would want to do. All the action is a short walk away & when you have had enough, you can return to the peaceful, quiet of the Annex. The townhouse was just beautiful! The pictures are spot on. We went with our son & daughter in law & it was nice that they had their very own bathroom right off their bedroom. The unit has everything you need. We loved sitting on the front porch & also the side patio. Being on the end was very nice. Tons of light coming in the windows made it very bright & cheerful. Mike was wonderful to work with & always answered any questions promptly. We would not hesitate to stay here again & highly recommend this as your home away from home when visiting Key West.
Location,location,location! My husband and two teenage sons stayed here for Christmas. It was our first trip to Key West and this townhouse was perfect. Very clean, updated, with everything you need. We rented bikes for the week (highly recommend) and rode all over the island. Truman Annex is a quiet, beautiful neighborhood - just outside the gate you are right in the action of Key West. The owner Mike answered all our questions and was very easy to work with. We will be back!
If you are searching properties in the Truman Annex, look no further. This is the perfect location for walking to everything, including the beach. The townhouse has everything you could possibly need and everything functions properly. The unit is decorated nicely and has a lovely, quiet side patio for outdoor relaxing. Our booking experience with the owner was quick and efficient and we will definitely make this our first choice for our next trip to Key West.
